New Ford Fiesta - available at Gates dealerships in Essex, Hertfordshire and London
The New Ford Fiesta continues to be among Britain’s favourite vehicles, and with good reason. Known for its dynamic handling, energetic performance and compact dimensions, it’s a great option for urban life, whether you’re using it for the daily commute or adding a second car to the household. Plus, with no fewer than nine models available, you can choose whether you want to add extra luxury, sportiness, or practicality to the mix.
Refreshed and rejuvenated, the ever-popular Fiesta features new, slimmer headlights and an updated grille, the design of which varies according to the specification you choose. The Blue Oval now sits on the grille itself, and LED lighting comes as standard, with matrix LED headlights an option for those who want uncompromised visibility in bad weather and during manoeuvres. The bonnet has also been reshaped, lifting the profile slightly, while the sharp contouring lends a more athletic feel to the overall appearance.
Bespoke elements are available with each version too. Trend and Titanium models boast chrome trim, while the ST model features a widened lower grille. Active variants have a raised ride height and rugged design cues in keeping with the compact crossover vibe. Three new colours are also available: Boundless Blue, Beautiful Berry and – on ST models – Mean Green.
The award-winning 1.0-litre EcoBoost petrol engine is available with manual transmission, but drivers can also opt for a 1.0-litre EcoBoost Hybrid. This features 48V mild-hybrid technology, and offers an output of either 123bhp or 153bhp, with emissions of just 111g/km. The battery helps to conserve fuel by assisting the start/stop system, meaning this Fiesta variant can achieve up to 48mpg on the combined cycle. A choice of manual and automatic transmissions is available too, depending on the output you choose. The New Ford Fiesta ST, meanwhile, boasts a 1.5-litre petrol engine that delivers 200hp and 320Nm of torque, sending it racing from 0-62mph in just 6.5 seconds, and on to a top speed of 143mph.
Inside, the New Ford Fiesta has been upgraded to provide greater comfort and convenience. In place of the traditional instrument cluster is a 12.3-inch digital cluster with customisable display modes and themes that vary according to the selected drive mode. Meanwhile, infotainment features can be operated via the 8.0-inch touchscreen display or with voice commands. Apple CarPlay and Android Auto are both supported, making access to your smartphone apps intuitive, while with the FordPass Connect modem, you can receive live traffic updates.
A host of new driver assistance features makes your journeys safer than ever before. Wrong Way Alert uses a camera in tandem with the navigation system to warn you if you happen to be travelling against oncoming traffic, while Rear Occupant Alert helps you to avoid leaving children or pets on the back seat. Other technologies such as Adaptive Cruise Control, Lane-Keeping Aid, and Automatic Emergency Braking are also available to give you the utmost confidence on the road, while ST-Line editions offer even more, with Traffic Sign Recognition and Auto High Beam as standard.
